Governor Mike Parson signed Executive Order 22-10 temporarily relaxing hours of service regulations for commercial motor vehicles transporting propane
Today, Governor Mike Parson signed Executive Order 22-10 temporarily relaxing hours of service regulations for commercial motor vehicles transporting propane heating fuel. “With bitter cold temperatures expected to impact much of the state and nation into the holiday weekend, the demand for heating fuel will only rise. We want to do our part to prevent significant fuel distribution delays,” Governor Parson said. “This Order will help meet this need and protect the well-being of Missourians by allowing truck drivers more time to distribute propane fuel to homes and businesses across the state.” Current federal and state regulations limit the number of hours commercial truck drivers can operate to 11 consecutive hours. Executive Order 22-10 temporarily suspends these regulations for motor carriers transporting propane fuel. No other petroleum products or fuels are covered under the Order. Executive Order 22-10 maintains all other regulations and safety requirements associated with commercial transportation. The Order will take effect immediately, and remain in effect until January 3, 2023, unless otherwise extended.
